This guide is for almost every Linux distribution.
Prerequisite is that you have the required build tools installed already.
If not, do the following step:
Debian and Ubuntu users way;
sudo apt-get install build-essential
The Fedora/Red Hat way:
sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Legacy Software Development"
First step is getting the source package
Next step is compiling and installing it;
tar xf bash-4.0.tar.gz
sudo make install
The Ubuntu kernel guys have released an “official” build of the 2.6.29 Linux Kernel which came out tonight. The .deb files work for both Ubuntu and Debian! (and outdated, stable and test releases like Ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope.
The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration but lack ubuntu specific drivers. Note: nVIDIA ForceWare drivers are automaticly installed using DKMS (which is included in Ubuntu 8.10)
The files can be found at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.29/
- Download http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.29/linux-headers-2.6.29-020629_2.6.29-020629_all.deb
- Download your kernel headers package;
- Download your kernel compile;
- Install the files in the same order as mentions above! (doing step 1 and 2 the other way around isn`t possible!)
For lazy guys console freaks; dpkg -i *.deb
(Notice: the console have to be in the same directory as the downloads and no other .deb packages should be there – else they also get installed)
- Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
